    So It's been 1 year since taking ownership of my 2010 FSR Copper Burst Telecaster and I still play it everyday.

    Oh and I picked up an artic white HSS Strat that I'm turning into a Suhr (videos are in my sig). You would think because of this new acquisition that the Tele would be collecting dust.

    Not the case, my Tele is awesome. Only thing I've done to it was add a 1962 Fender Reissue pickup and that was only because the stock one is dead.

    Pic after installing the pickup.

    I play every day but not always one of the Teles. I just rotate through all of mine as the mood strikes me or if I have something coming up where I'll be playing a certain one then I'll play that one more.

    I have an 85 MIJ that I once converted to an Esquire some years back and have since converted back with a Twisted Tele neck pup and the Esquire pup which was made by Fezz Parka.

    Also a 3 yr old CV50 that converted to an Esquire. Both turned out fabulously

    I rarely miss a day...and always through an amp. See both in the avatar.

    Most days I'll play 2 or 3 of my guitars and usually at least one of them is a Tele. I have my favourites that I play frequently but I try to make sure every guitar gets played sometimes.

    It's part of my daily routine: sit on the veranda and quietly sing Psalms with my Telecaster -- and a headphone amp so the family and neighbors don't complain.

    Yeah 1 or 2 hours a night, been doing that for years. I go round robin on my amps and teles. When I am feeling super aggressive it's the SG into the Marshall.

    Every day unless I'm away from home. I've only had the tele for about 6 months but it's the one that gets played. I'll pick up the semi-hollow body or acoustic from time to time too but the tele every day.

    The Tele is heavy utilized daily. Occasionally switch over to the Strat. Can't go wrong with Fender guitars.
